Increase Max memory for pc??

  jomuir 15:14 09 Dec 05

Right just checked and I can have 3 x 256MB max on my pc. I have tried with one 512MB and just got 2 long beeps!!

Is there any way of increasing this to 3 x 512MB?

By updating the BIOS? or some form of firmware?

current BIOS is Compaq 686T2 v08.22.1999
Motherboard is a Compaq 041Ch

I am currently running Windows XP with 386MB (256MB and 125MB)

I suspect that if your board only takes 3 x 256mb that's all you can have. There also seems to be a bit of a compatability issue ...see this threadclick here

this any use for updates?

I would doubt that it'll ever be able to take more RAM the 256 in each slot.
